Gypsy became my go-to dive shop in 2016. I came in to order a Full-Face Mask and when I picked it up, Billy took me down to the pool deck to go over everything and give it some dive time in the pool before my next trip. On leaving, I felt extremely comfortable and capable with my new equipment. That experience is what I try to replicate every day with our fellow divers when they come into the shop.

Justin’s love for the water started at an early age and inspired him to serve in the US Marine Corps where he spent much of his time in the ocean. He became a certified diver in 2011 and has traveled internationally for diving in the Caribbean, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, including a few months abroad in Sri Lanka with his family. Justin first came to the dive shop to buy a Full-Face Mask and fell in love with the family-like atmosphere. Since coming on board, he can usually be found reading up on the newest dive technology or chatting with others about shared bucket list destinations.

When Justin is not at Gypsy, he spends his time with his wife Lara and daughter Alex taking care of their property. He also loves hiking, paddling, and woodworking in his shop.
